HYDE PARK, Vt. (AP) -- Lt. Gov. Phil Scott will travel to the northern Vermont town of Hyde Park to provide an update on emergency preparedness in Vermont schools.
Scott says the Vermont Enhanced 911 Board and other state agencies have been coordinating efforts to make sure there's a telephone in every classroom whose physical location is correctly recorded in the E-911 database.
The work has been underway since shortly after the mass shooting at a school in Newtown, Conn.
It has involved the Vermont Agency of Education Department of Public Safety, police chiefs, sheriffs and Scott's office.
